Concept: Chiara Frigo
Interpreter: Amy Bell
Written by: Riccardo de Torrebruna
West End, like the eponymous area of London, the quintessential place for theatrical entertainment, but also like the ‘end of the West’: Chiara Frigo’s latest work plays with this double meaning, the conclusion of a process that began with the European project ‘Act Your Age’ that specifically centres around entertainment. The protagonist of the solo performance – the volcanic Amy Bell – tap dances on the ashes of the West, retracing the vaudeville tradition with her homage. A reflection, that doesn’t take itself too seriously, on what it means to be a westerner in the years of the crisis, and on the possibilities of rebirth.
